Small industrial complex comprising two building platforms, large banks and a gully suggesting control of water. One building platform is 7 metres long by 3.5 metres wide with 1 metre wide banks and is aligned north-west to south-east. The second larger feature aligned north-north-west to south-south-east seems to be in two parts one of which is 8 metres long by 4 metres wide. A large bank to the east is 30 metres long by 6 metres wide and 1-1.5 metres high. Another bank to the east seems to border a large gully running towards a later drain to the south-east of the building platforms. These features are not shown on historic maps and are not necessarily of the same age. Map object based on this source.
